IN HOUSE DESIGN
EACON LTD can design or validate your existing project air conditioning, heating and ventilation. Every well designed mechanical system need to supply not only the needs of the building, but also the needs of its occupants. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are different in every building and situations that they need to be used and they play a vital role in creating the right conditions for staff to be productive and for a business to be successful.
Careful planning needs to go into the design of HVAC solutions, even for the most typical building, as temperature fluctuations and poor quality air can serve as major distractions and also causes of respiratory diseases.
“Remember: A poorly designed or installed system
will create a poor working environment.”
We believe the best way to guarantee results is to make sure a project is consulted, designed, installed and managed by the same partner. One of the biggest challenges of a mechanical installation is getting everyone up to speed, particularly when engineers join a project late in its development. That’s why communication and work method are essential, client, main contractor, engineers and office can't have lack of communication.
This not only means better understanding of the project across the board, but also allows everyone involved to adapt quickly. Sometimes plans need to change when the work is in progress, then, experience, clear and effective communication and commitment with the smallest details will make the difference to achieve a final result beyond expectation.
“With regard to commitment, effort, dedication, there is no middle ground.
Or you do something very well or not at all.”
FINDING THE BALANCE
Every HVAC design project requires a trade off, which is why it is so important for a designer to understand the building and those who will occupy it. Whether you need a heating, ventilation, air conditioning or energy management system, or an installation that combines more than one element, there are always several aspects to consider, including:
• Budget. Often, clients fail to adequately consider a project's budget or to consider the additional costs that certain choices may incur. Price is not or should not be the determining factor for choosing a project.
• Energy saving. People are becoming more aware of their impact on the environment, not to mention the potential cost savings of more energy-conscious approaches. A good design has a solid grasp of these issues and how to make sure energy is only used when it is needed.
• Type of work. Every building is different, and so is the work done in them. HVAC design must account for the needs of the occupants and how they will change over the course of a day and a year.
• Flexibility. The system should be adaptable enough if you may have to make significant changes sooner than expected. From cost management to energy efficiency, we make sure the right balance is struck for your building.
We have total commitment with every single project and we built good working relationships with our suppliers, meaning we get the best equipment for the fairest price.
VALIDATING YOUR DESIGNS
Paper, pencil and knowledge, from the first sketches to the final touches on the computer everything needs to be carefully calculated or revised, your HVAC systems cannot provide the optimum environment if you don’t start with a good design.
Our team offers validation of existing designs, including checks for compliance with building regulations and best practice guidelines.
With over 15 years’ experience of mechanical services, we’ve seen many designs that are unrealistic or simply unsuitable. Our design service means we can get the approach right from the beginning, rather than value engineering in the installation phase. It also means our customers avoid the costly delays and redesigns that are often inevitable when a designer is too far removed from the project.
